Not exactly Easter

OK, so it's Easter, today. I'll be out of the house to do holiday-themed stuff, soon. But, for right now, let's ignore the calendar, ok?
I've stumbled across a new favorite Punk Rock band- Barcelona's The Capaces. They've been around for 10 years, so I don't know where I've been, but it should have been Barcelona!
Sound? OK, take the punk-y rocknroll drive of bands like Motorhead, Zeke, Reo Speedealer, or the Bronx. Got it? Now, take the aggression and speed, and crank it up to the intensity of Discharge and sometimes all the way up to first-album Die Kreuzen. Have Kat Arthur from Legal Weapon sing for this juggernaut. Are you there? No? Let me guess, you haven't heard of most of the references I just made. OK, well, go look them up. If you like most of them, you'll want to hear the Capaces. If not, you probably don't really like thrashy hardcore like I do, and that's OK. At least you know where I'm coming from. Alternately, you could just listen to the Capaces, because this is exactly the kind of music I've been listening to since I was a pre-teen. When it's good, like the Capaces are, nothing connects more with me. Where's the pit?
